I always thought the third trimester started at 28 wks...apparently it depends on what web site you look at.

I will be 27 weeks in two days, which some consider the third trimester...what do you consider the third trimester?

For myself, I think I will wait the one more week, and say next Thursday I'm in the third trimester, just because I'm like to take the longest one. I didn't consider myself in the second till 13 wks for example, while some sites said 12 as actually the 2nd. What do you think?

I consider it 27 weeks. I have always looked at it like it is 13 weeks to a trimester.

I considered myself in the 2nd trimester at 13w3d. I'm saying that the 3rd trimester starts at 27 weeks.....only because all of my 3 books say that.

I considered myself in the 2nd at 14 weeks (just because I was afraid something was going to go wrong and I didn't want to get my hopes up - plus for the first 2 weeks you aren't even actually pregnant, lol) and will consider myself in the 3rd at 27 weeks.

I think the confusion comes in because the books don't say you start your 3rd trimester when you either "start" or "complete" your 28th week. They just say "at 28 weeks". If it was when you "start" your 28th week, then it would be when you have hit 27 weeks and 1 day and are starting your 28th week. If it's when you "complete" your 28th week, then it isn't until you actually hit 28 weeks. I'm going with when I start the first day of my 28th week which means my ticker will say 27 weeks, 1 day.

I always considered it 28 weeks but my insurance maternity nurse called me last week when I hit 27 weeks and congratulated me on hitting the 3rd tri so IDK? I will be 28 weeks tomorrow so I am officially saying I am in my 3rd tri now!

I will probably do 28 wks...just because I like to go just a little bit longer...also, if I go 28 wks, I feel like i have more time to get stuff done, because I'm not in the third tri mester yet. It was cool to see what everyone thought though for sure.
